Overview
A spy reveals startling secrets and carries out a breathless mission in an astonishing guide that takes the 'Ologies to a new level.
The year is 1958, and British spy Spencer Blake, aka "Agent K," is on an undercover mission to expose a deadly criminal organization. As he traverses the globe with his American and Soviet cohorts from Scotland to Berlin to Las Vegas to Cuba he furtively records his secret techniques in a manual for new recruits.
Once they've primed themselves on the essentials of spy craft, keen-eyed readers will discover that Agent K has been setting them challenges and clues to decipher all along. If they are clever enough to unravel them all, a great reward awaits "

Move over, Mata Hari: the Ologies take a new direction with this spectacular addition to the series. Maintaining the beloved interactive format, the latest entry poses as a collection of items assembled in 1958 and stored in national archives, now declassified under the “fifty-year rule.” Agent K, a British spy, is tracking down the evil international Operation Codex, using his mission to ground a training manual for spies. Readers can match wits with Agent K as they pick up clues; absorb lessons in reading body language (too much eye contact might mean that someone is trying too hard to seem sincere), creating instant disguises or following someone; learn about famous spies; and more. Enticing extras include a red-tinted magnifying glass, a “secret compartment” concealed in the spine and a code-maker/-breaker. Who could resist? Ages 8–up. (Oct.)
